Aging Together in New York

May 15-21: Aging Together Week 2023
Aging presents a unique stage of life - one that has not been adequately explored.  As life expectancy grows, our society has not kept up with the potential of an added generation of experience - potentially decades beyond age sixty-five.   While projected longevity and increased quality of life presents opportunities, there are challenges that need attention now.  

As we age, we are more likely to live alone and can face barriers to community and connection.  Leaving work, the deaths of friends and loved ones, stopping driving, hearing and vision challenges all can isolate older adults from sources of community.  Social isolation alone doesn’t guarantee loneliness, but it is a significant risk factor.
